Bill Clinton On Newt Gingrich’s Campaign: “He’s Being Rewarded For Thinking”

Bill Clinton told Newsmax that Newt Gingrich is being rewarded for coming up with thoughtful conservative solutions to problems. Clinton was especially impressed with Gingrich’s answer to the immigration issue.

“He said, ‘OK, I don’t want to legitimize immigrants who came here undocumented, illegally.’ On the other hand, a lot of those people have been here for years, they worked hard, they paid taxes, they’ve got kids in the schools, they’re not criminals, we’re going to have a hard time sending them all home, there’s millions of them. So, I’d like to have a process where they could be here legally but not have a path to citizenship. That sort of splits the difference between the immigration reforms proposed by President Bush and President Obama, which would give a path to citizenship, and would be a version of what President Reagan did.”
